New! Skip-Line checkering, Executive Elite II
A classy spin on traditional checkering, the new Skip-Line checkering from Ed Brown screams custom! Every fifth groove is skipped in both the horizontal and vertical direction, giving a gorgeous custom appearance while maintaining the secure grip traditional checkering is famous for. Skip-Line checkering will now be available on any Ed Brown pistol.
